Prevents formation and propagation of cracks on the surface
Decorative coating should be applied exclusively to quality basis. The surface must be solid, dry, free of efflorescence, dust, dirt, oil and grease. Previously painted surfaces should be cleaned of old material and treated with sandpaper. The places affected by mold or moss should be thoroughly cleaned mechanically and treated with D-07 ELF™ primer or other special means.
Apply the QUARTZ PRIMER or D-17 ELF™ primer to the prepared surface depending on the selected texture (fig. 1). Wait until it dries completely. Thoroughly mix the white or tinted PALAZZO base and apply it using a plastic or metal plastering trowel to the wall (fig. 2). Material allows you to improvise with different styles, so you can create any texture according to your desire – you can use such techniques as RIO, «stippling» method as well as crewting the imitation of travertine stone (fig. 3, 4). Wait for the complete drying of the surface (24 hours).
Treat the base layer with a sandpaper and prime it with D-11 ELF™ or D-15 ELF™ primer. Also ypu can use DECOR PRIMER for certain techniques. It is recommended to use VINTAGE velature siloxano for decoration and the creation of the patina (fig. 5). This topcoat can be tinted by adding the selected dye or using a computer tinting system. It is recommended to use the D-16 ELF™ hydrophobizator or Polyfluid Somefor™ to increase waterproofing and fungicidal features.
It is necessary to protect the surface with the finishing façade compounds after this. We recommend to use D-105 ELF™ facade varnish for the walls with normal vapor permeability (brick, concrete). Mix it thoroughly before application and apply it with a brush or roller in 1 layer (or in 2 layers, if you add up to 30% water) (fig. 6), Special facade coatings with high vapor permeability should be used as the finishing layer for the walls with high vapor permeability (aerated concrete, limestone, walls, insulated with mineral wool). It is also possible to decorate PALAZZO using DECOR WAX topcoat with the obligatory subsequent application of D-105 ELF™ facade varnish as a protective coating.
